Rajkummar Rao has been basking in the success of his latest releases, Chhalaang and Ludo, and amid that, has also been prepping up for his next with Kriti Sanon. The actor who has to shoot for the film despite the crackdown of the pandemic, says he was a little apprehensive at first. "Of course, I was a little apprehensive. But the kind of preparation we have here, we lived in a bubble for the first seven days. Everybody is getting tested regularly, and there are a lot of safety precautions that the team is taking, which is amazing. The credit goes to them, they all are being very alert," he told a leading tabloid.
He credits Khiladi actor Akshay Kumar for being the flag bearer of shooting first. "I think work is important, and thanks to Akshay (Kumar) sir, starting with Bell Bottom. He managed to finish a whole film, which is amazing! After a while things will go back to normal, people would want to go out and watch films, so we have to start making them. Of course, keeping safety in mind, added Rajkummar.
About his films releasing on OTT, Rao added, "Of course I didn’t want it this way. That’s how makers thought, it’s festive season, and we are a country of 1.3 billion people, they would have wanted to see films and great content. I am sure they wouldn’t have done this in theatres, because on OTT you can watch as per your convenience, whenever you want."
